Event Description & Cancellation Policy

Exploration Calling Intensive Weekend

By the end of this weekend you will be Alert & Oriented to your story, desires and journey. You will be given several exploration assignment that you will complete before the retreat and that you will go through in your group.  It is absolutely amazing what your heart reveals through these exercises and the insights others will have about your calling and journey.

You will be more known, more encouraged and more aware than ever before.  You will have learned more about how to interpret your heart, the hearts of others and the voice of God.  This event has been a turning point, a decisive moment for many throughout the years.

The calling intensive, which begins Thursday or Friday evening and ends Sunday afternoon, builds on the material in the book, It’s Your Call.


Sheer Beauty Retreat

Sheer Beauty is a retreat inviting women to a deeper, more true and lasting beauty in the Kingdom of God. This kind of beauty, not easily come by, is born out of the trials and testings, the triumphs and the tragedies of the reality of the story we find ourselves living in. A life of sheer beauty is found in the dreaming, the dying, the surrendering, the training, the bowing down and the rising up, the running and finally the reigning with Christ in this life and in the age to come.

Sheer beauty is our true inheritance. By God’s hand our identity is imparted and yet the call on our lives is hard fought for. Sonship is bestowed by our Father and costs us nothing, but walking in our true glory costs us everything. Being a princess in the Kingdom is a gift, but becoming a queen and reigning with Jesus is a destiny long chosen.

We begin this life with God by faith, but we finish the race by faithfulness…During this retreat, we will explore where we find ourselves in God’s story and in light of the hour we are currently living, what it will look like to gain this kind of beauty and answer the call…”For such a time as this…”

The retreat begins Thursday evening and ends Sunday afternoon.


It’s Your Call: A Retreat Experience

This calling retreat is a weekend expedition into the heart in search of your calling through teaching, movie clips, questions and times alone with God.

Gary will take you through the major elements of our journey: Orientation, Mystery, Glory, Assault, Discovery, Development and Journey

You can view sample clips from the home page.

In order to make significant strides toward the discovery and deeper understanding our calling, we must find times when we can disengage from our world and fully engage our heart and God’s.  This is one of those times, beginning Thursday or Friday evening and ending Sunday noon.


Base Camp Gatherings

For Base Camp Members.

The Gathering is not a conference, seminar or retreat; it is a highly relational time with each other and with God. We will have formal and informal gathering times.

In the formal gathering times a facilitator will briefly present / stir / inspire / create an idea for us journal and interact on around our journey.

The informal times will be around meals and a fire, on the deck and on the mountain (hiking and repelling). We’ll experience laughter, stories, commonality, uniqueness and prayer.
